Accelerate Time to Market by Leveraging a Manufacturing Partnership

  • Key considerations for evaluating potential custom partners
  • Examples and lessons learned from Promega Corporation's experience


Advances in life science research are opening up exciting new applications for biotechnology and clinical products. A collaborative partnership with a manufacturing partner can decrease time to market without the investment in manufacturing infrastructure. Additionally, product developers gain insight into product development best practices, work with an experienced partner to ensure quality and regulatory compliance for the product and tap into supply-chain controls and logistical solutions that can result in a competitive advantage. While utilization of a contract manufacturer can result in a variety of benefits, selecting the best manufacturing partner can be a challenge.

Join us for this webinar as we will review key considerations for evaluating potential custom partners, followed by examples and lessons learned from Promega Corporation's experience as a custom manufacturing partner for a variety of markets.
